Fraction Decimal Card Game
Bundle Description

My gifted talented class grasps material at such a quick pace that I usually end our units with an application project. This bundle includes 4 projects and 1 art page that combine student's creative and mathematical skills. I've also included a bonus fraction/decimal game.

Multiplication/Division Project - Design a Resort:

This works great as an individual extension project or for whole class at the end of a unit. Students create a resort and solve multiple-step word problems involving aspects of their vacation destination. Problems include some 2-digit multiplication problems and long division, as well as a mix of all other operations. To differentiate, you can print Element and Problem #5 as an additional step or eliminate it for struggling students.

Fraction Project - Design a Restaurant:

Students will half and double recipes, solve restaurant-related word problems, and apply their knowledge of fractions. You can further challenge students by requiring them to complete the “Extend Your Thinking” questions in a math journal or additional sheet of paper. I've also included elements you can eliminate to shorten the project.

Fraction Projet - Design a Zoo:

This project involves a balance of creativity and interest along with real-world word problems. To differentiate, you can print different pages as additional steps or eliminate pages for struggling students. Students can have “mix-and-match” pages and be motivated by choice, or teachers can print the entire packet (14 pages total). Detailed page descriptions are included in the document overview. An answer key is also provided

Fraction Name Art:

Discuss how a name is made up of different letters (or parts), like a fraction. The name Megan has 5 parts to make the whole so each letter represents 1/5 of the entire name. This activity invites students to model fractions, find equivalent fractions, compare fractions, and think outside the box. In addition, it ties in a few short response questions and some creativity and coloring!

Decimal Project - Foreign Exchange Rate:

This exploration project integrates ELA, Math, and Social Studies. Students read a passage about exchange rates and currency and respond to questions. They select countries on an exchange rate chart to compare to the US dollar. Math problems involve rounding decimals, comparing decimals, adding decimals, and multiplying by decimals (or fractions). Additional social studies connections include locating countries on a map, design your own currency, designing a post card based on a specific country, and exploring the website: Dollar Street.

BONUS: Fraction and Decimal Card Game:

This is a simple task related game my students play as a math warm-up or when they finish early. Students take turns drawing a task card and flipping over corresponding fraction cards. They record their work and responses on a separate sheet. I've also included a graphing assignment where students graph the frequency of times they drew each card.
